I only have 20D at the moment. However things will change when 40D really comes available. Since I like primes, I will try to make two camera setup to work.

You left out a choice for those of us that do both, depending on the circumstances. If I'm out covering an air show for the publication I string for, I'll use two cameras. If I go to the zoo to shoot for my own enjoyment, then I take one camera and change lenses when needed.

I don't have enough expendable cash now, so I have to stick with my 350D. But I plan on adding another body next year probably.

Both; it depends. When I'm out with my wife, she will take the 5D and I'll get the 1D. We'll use zooms, primes or a combination of both. If I'm doing all the shooting and I have time to set up the shots, I like to use some nice primes on the 5D.

lens switcher. i'll be pushing my luck to get a 2nd camera body after the hefty investment on a 1D series! as its just a hobby, and i take pictures free-&-easy, there's no need for the convenience of having 2 bodies with different lens attached. what i would be interested to know is if anyone of us would rather have 1 pro body or 2 mid-range ones, or vice versa... guess i could save that for a separate thread... ah nevermind.

Both, but just recently went to 2 cameras, although one is full-frame and the other crop... so I still swap lenses even between the two bodies!

One camera, too many lenses. But come next Spring: Two cameras and 3 less lenses!

I have two canon bodies, 5 lens's & a medium format TLR, but what I take/use really depends on what I have planned for the day.

I can't stand shuffling between lenses, so I try to have both cameras with me with the two lenses I will most use for the event. If I had 4 cameras, you can bet I'd have them all with me and each would have a different lens on it.
